Pretty Amazing Happy Returns

This is for today's SKETCH and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGES. This actually turned out better than I thought it was going to even with all of the trouble I had with it. {HERE are the low down dirty details. : I stamped my flower in versamark and did poppin' pastel technique bc I have not used that one in awhile. I used the chaulk in the set that said it was ROSE RED which was the alternate for Pomegrante. Well it looks more like real red once I placed it against the paper. The bird I stamped in versa mark and embosed in a pomegrante EP then filed in the open area using teh versamark pen which I have always had trouble with. Used the saffron, rose red & green chaulks. YUK this looks aweful. So I ended up just coloring the bird and stamping the flower with ink.} The flower is stamped in purely pomegrante and the center was wiped and then inked with so saffron (messy). Stickles applied in the center. The humingbird was colored w/prismacolor pencils then blended w/gamsol and stickles applied. The flower & bird are popped up on the corner of wild wasabi pattern prints and the focal image stem stamped in so saffron then sentiment stamped over that in pomegrante & wasabi. Stickles applied to the stem and the flowers stamped on layer 1 in pomegrante. Pomegrante faux ribbon knots in the corners of layer 2. Hope you like it. I think I will give this to a co-worker who is overworked and stressed out. She truely is amazing at juggling all of us and her 2 immediate bosses too, very demanding of her attention.
